Dailypakistan.com.pk is essentially the online arm of Daily Pakistan Urdu-language broadsheet. Since Pakistani laws do not require registration of websites, information about when this was set up is missing and the website itself offers little information by way of introducing itself except for naming the owner-editor. It is, however, part of the Daily Pakistan Group owned by Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Shami.
